What ARE these?

Mystery of the day.

Bought a bag full of string, yarn and thread at the thrift store the other day and these wood things were in the bag too:

1.19.13 ets custom 091Anyone of you know what these are and it they are worth trying to SELL in my etsy shop.  They are beautiful solid wood.

1.19.13 ets custom 092This little plastic doo-dad was in there too.

1.19.13 ets custom 093And these three wood things.

I’m really just curious as to what they are.  Assuming they have something to do with knitting, so I will never need them.  If these are something that one of you could use, or know someone who needs them; I’d be happy to sell all of them in one lot for $5.00 and the cost of shipping.

*****EDITED TO ADD*****

For some reason the word ‘shuttle’ kept coming to mind when I saw these, but I’ve never SEEN one before, so how would I know what it was?!?!?  But after the first few comments, I decided to do a search and found this information:

http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=weaving+shuttle&qpvt=weaving+shuttle&FORM=IGRE

So, the ARE shuttles!  Weaving shuttles though; nothing to do with knitting.   The offer to sell them CHEAP is still good for a while.  If no one snaps them up, (and now that I know what to call them!) I’ll just sell them in my etsy shop as supplies.

UPDATE:  These WEAVING SHUTTLES have gone to a good home.  Thank you all for your input!

  1. It’s been years, but my great grandmother tatted lace, and she used some things that kind of looked like that? She passed away in 1985 at the age of 90, so it’s been awhile. But seeing your pics brought back that memory.

  2. I think the top ones are bobbins for knitting machines. They might be called shuttles.

    Really enjoy your postings and all your talent!

  3. I believe the top ones are Weaving Loom Spool Bobbin Shuttles.

  4. Shuttles for weaving and tools to tat with

  5. these are weaving shuttles used in weaving the other tools are used to attach the threads to the loom

  6. Used for pulling string or yarn through a weaving process. Then the yarn is pressed tight in the loom and the string is brought through the strings on the loom in the opposite direction and pressed tight.

  7. They were used for weaving

  8. shuttle cocks for weaving and….yeah…I just read Sunnie’s and she is correct!

  9. Quite interesting. I don’t know what they are, but when you do find out please let all us know. Thanks

  10. I’ll buy them all if no one else has already. I live in zip code 92692 (to calculate shipping.)
    Thanks!

  11. THOSE THINGS ARE TO USE IN AN OLD FASHION WEAVING MACHINE. YOU HAVE A FRAME WITH STRINGS GOING UP AND DOWN AND THOSE ARE THE SHUDDLES THAT YOU WEAVE BACK AND FORTH THROUGH THE STRINGS AND THE THREAD COME OFF. IT IS LIKE WHAT THE INDIANS USED TO MAKE RUGS. By the way, I love getting your e-mails and posts! Patti
